I have only one thing to say about that.
There were two polls done here, on the forum, and one on discord.
For those who have deigned to answer, it's about 55/60% in FAVOR of autohunt, and 40/45% AGAINST it.
(and as said multiple times by Galeas, in-game poll are broken) (again)
Indeed. We had around 500 votes and it was around 60% in favor of autohunt.
